Stress makes me sleepy
« on: April 05, 2014, 09:41:35 AM »
I've notixed that when I'm stressed out I often feel farigue and sleepy. There was once a point where all I could mdo was sleep. If I relieve the stress though I'm not sleepy anymore.

This happened more early into my stress but I'd periodically feel sleepy.  One hour I'm fine,  the next I'm exhausted,  then fine, then sleepy.. Is this stress?

I've also suffered from early morning insomnia.  I wake up at 2, 4, 5 and can't get back to sleep. It's gotten  bit better though. I wake up at 7 now and I can fall asleep now.

Sounds typical of anxiety / stress to me. It can drain a person one moment. Make you want to sleep. Then when it is time to sleep at night you are wide awake. I used to sleep when I could. At times staying up till 6 am. These days I have my routine of going to bed at 10 and getting up at 6 in the morning. Just something I started to do. I got out of sleeping at all hours of the day. No matter how tired I felt. I stuck to my routine. Even on nights when I couldn't sleep. I would still stay in bed and just relax. Maybe put a radio on. After a while I got used to the routine.

Chronic stress is so annoying. I woke up this morning sleepy but that was 3 hours ago and I'm fine now. I had some on-and-off fatigue moments but I'm fine right now.

Many people with hypersomnia experience symptoms of anxiety, low energy and memory problems as a result of their almost constant need for sleep.
